Defense Offense Man to man Man-to-man defense has the advantage of maintaining pressure on the ball at all times. This defense involves each defender marking an assigned offensive player.
However, defenders two-passes away from the ball drop off their man into 'helpside' defense.
So, away from the ball, man to man defense acts a lot like a zone defense, while you have a defender pressuring the ball at all times. Zone Instead of guarding a particular player, each zone defender is responsible for guarding an area of the floor, or "zone", and any offensive player that comes into that area.
Zone defenders move their position on the floor in relationship to where the ball moves. An advantage of a zone defense is that you can stop dribble-penetration and protect the key Blue

2 flares to the three-point line after the screen. 3 moves out to the top and is the 'home' man on defense.
This play tends to "flatten" the defense, and with the empty space under the basket, is ideal for back-cuts to the hoop, especially from the wing. There are several options:
1 passing to a high post player, and then the wings 3 and 2 back-cutting to the hoop for the pass from the high post. Or;
the pass could go to a wing, and the near post screens away for the opposite post, who then cuts to the hoop for the pass from the wing.
